Delete your game data and reinstall. It's another way.

It has been several months since the last patch. This is also the biggest content update since Rising Storm. It's also reworking the cooking system into a new brewing system to make future patches smaller. I think this warrants a big download.

i dont care how big the patch is. the problem is the way they patch the game. what we are doing is redownloading the game whit the changes every patch

Yes, for this patch that is the case because of the way the Unreal Engine works. This patch however, changes that and will make future patches significantly smaller. Before, any small change to a map required that you would redownload the entire map with the changes. Now, they can make small changes and that will no longer be an issue.

He is right. Developer Yoshiro stated so at TWI forums:

... and let's also not forget to celebrate the fact, that the guys are still patching and improving this game.

I was about to install the game again but it's still indicating that it's a 22gb game. Is that right?

I'm okay with that but I don't want to install it now and find out that it's the old version. An additional 9gb after that and I'll be destroyed by my ISP.
